Book Review: Angels Everywhere by Debbie Macomber


This book is a Christmas series of two stories that follow three angels' quests to help six women in two metropolitans to find love. The stories are feel-good stories that are both heart warming and simple to read. If you enjoy reading some old fashioned romance that portraits strong family value, this is the book. Even though the stories are supposed to be set in the mid 90s, I myself find them sound a little too 1950s because the female characters in the stories didn't seem to have other goals besides getting married and having children. While one of the characters worked as a nurse and another worked as an inner city school teacher, I don't remember what successful careers the rest of the women were having. The book just doesn't talk much about what the women do for a living, it is rarely mentioned. When it is mentioned, it's either too vague or too general. It's the same thing with the cities where the characters reside. Sometimes, I feel the stories over simplify the two cities and the metropolitan lives. The book gives me a small town feel even though the setting is in two big cities. While I find the stories sometimes too superficial and too simple minded, I enjoyed reading them. I just like the morals and optimism they advocate.
